Why Angelina Jolie Is No Longer A Wild Woman

Why Angelina Jolie Is No Longer A Wild Woman-photo

There was a time when Angelina Jolie was considered one of the wildest actresses in Hollywood. She had tattoos, was openly bisexual, talked about doing the nasty, and she allegedly wore vials of blood around her neck. However, the days of wild Angelina are no more and the 35-year-old actress is the first to admit that she has changed and become more of a homebody.

In an interview with Parade magazine, Angelina opens up about her wild past and why she thinks that she used to do such outrageous stunts when she was a young actress:

I used to cut myself or jump out of airplanes, trying to find something new to push up against because sometimes everything else felt too easy. I was searching for something deeper, something more. I tried everything. I always felt caged, closed in, like I was punching at things that weren’t there. I always had too much energy for the room I was in.

I went through a period when I felt my film characters were having more fun than I was. It might partly explain why I ended up tattooed or doing certain extreme things in my life. [Points to tattoo] 'T'he wild heart caged.' I unlocked my cage years ago. I want my children to have that freedom. I want that for other people, too.

As for her life with Brad and her ever-expanding brood, Angelina says that she and her family don't discuss the tabloid gossip so the kids are (for now) unaware of that side of Angie and Brad's life.

The Salt star also admits that she and Brad are two "homebodies" and they are "very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas" when they are home.

Maybe it is easier to Angie to raise her kids since she herself was the daughter of a famous actor, John Voigt. Either way, it sounds like Angelina has considerably cooled from her wild past.

    IS BRAD PITT ENABLING THE ABUSE OF SHILOH? by Guest on Fri Jul 09, 2010 4:30 pm This Shiloh thing is what's bringing Jolie down. The homewrecking ho thing she's never lived down, the media may have been bought and loons created, but most of the public has no sympathy for her whatsoever, waiting for the time - which is this year, that karma comes and gets her. You wouldn't think she'd have the balls to pull off another huge emotional crime but she did. With Shiloh, intially she both capitalized on the pregnancy for publicity and sold photos for money while denigrating the child herself in order to glorify herself as an adoptive mother with a greater capacity for love than ordinary people. It was obvious that in her mind, most parents didn't love the adopted children as much as their bios, or she would have never told the story about Shiloh being a blob. Jolie wanted to elevate herself and declare by obvious implication that she was SPECIAL - she struggled to connect with her bio child while having enormous infinite love and connection for her adopted kids. Jolie also believes -- since it's an American commercial truism - that blonde hair/blue eyes are prized among the conventional citizens, but in her uber special, awareness laden, saintly universe, third world culture rules and the blonde blue eyed is an outcast. Isn't she special? She basically used Shiloh not to tell anything real about her feelings for or relationship with Shiloh, but used Shiloh as an illustration of how unusually special Jolie is, how unlike the ordinary and common CONVENTIONAL folk. Meantime the kid herself is totally ignored as Jolie milks her existence for self-aggrandizement, or, as she'd characterize it "elevation." Then came the hair event, and Jolie using it to create the fiction of Shiloh wanting to be a boy. She could have gotten away with that one - the kid is sturdy and active and no wilting wallflower. IF she'd dressed her as she dresses the boys - in urban type streetwear. But she had to dress her like a clown, claiming this was a THREE YEAR OLD's OWN SPECIFIC TASTE and actually thought she could sell that one. That's getting spit back in her face, as it should be. Lie about that, then is her wanting to be a boy really true? Does a child who thinks she is a boy and one of the brothers want to be in a hat, clothes tucked in, long sleeves in hot weather? Probably not, most sensible people conclude. Well, if she doesn't want to dress like that, maybe she doesn't want to be a boy at all. Why does Jolie say she does? BECAUSE JOLIE IS A MONSTER. It's intuitive to everybody who puts eyes on the kid. It doesn't make sense with wanting to be a boy, or identifying with her brothers. It doesn't make sense with being an active, rough and tumble child. MONTENEGRO STYLE? Jolie is so arrogant she believes the public doesn't know that's impossible for a child Shiloh's age. Montef*ckingnegro style. The Shiloh scam is one thing the public will not forgive, or even pretend, as occasionally it did in the past with AJ's homewrecking, to forget. What kind of mother uses a pre-schooler that way, making a mockery of her vulnerability, her lack of awareness, and the core of her identity?

    Angelina doesn't work fro UNICEF. She works for UNHCR and her films pay for a lot of humanitarian aid. They don't glamorize violence IMO.

    I've always thought Angelina Jolie was a second rate Monica Bellucci in looks and talent. I dislike her hypocrisy: being UNICEF rep that focuses on anti-violence towards women and yet she makes the kind of films that glamorize guns & violence.
